Update.. 7 Weeks left till New Orleans 70.3

By on March 5, 2012

Training has been picking up steam.. Yesterday I put it all together and did a 1.2 mile swim, 40 mile bike ride, and a 4 mile run… Everything went good, I recovered fast (enough to knock out a 25 mile bike ride and a 30 min swim the today). My nutrition and hydration was spot on and I felt good the whole time. I have been cutting weight a little as the volume picks up but I’m ok with that because I think I need to thin up a little bit more before race day.  My biggest improvement so far has been the swim… I knocked 14 mins off of my 1.2 mile time from a month ago and I think it’s because I’m just getting my form super tight. I’m getting really excited about the race and after yesterday I know I’m right on track… A few more of those full days and I should be mentally prepared and ready to go. My biggest weakness so far is my run. After completing the Louisiana Marathon I tore a muscle in my left foot and had to restart my entire mileage and now my foot is fine but I can’t shake this right I.T. band pain… It’s mentally discouraging and I find myself avoiding the run and focusing on swim and bike. The next 7 weeks need to bring my running back into focus or I’m going to be in a sticky situation when that half marathon rolls around. That’s my update.. Thanks to everyone for the encouraging words and I look forward to chatting with you more. Cheers
